Good old fashioned analogue radio for Mum that can pick up Melbourne Italian Radio (just!) on a certain angle on a window sill. Has a simple rotary dial and large easy to read numbers when changing radio stations. Very easy to use radio for elderly. But it works better with batteries only. Once I plugged in AC adapter, it picked up a bad interference so we stopped using it plugged into a power point. So it will cost more to run on batteries.
